Today I bought four dozen ears of corn at the farmer's market. While we were shucking it out on the deck, Sam grabbed one and started gnawing on it. By the time we'd finished the shucking, he had pretty much eaten an entire piece of the raw corn-on-the-cob. He sure thought that was the best treat he'd ever had while he was eating it and hanging on to it for dear life. He would not let anyone touch it.
Is there anything cuter than this happy little face!
Got the corn cooked, cut off the cobs, bagged in freezer bags and frozen to enjoy throughout the summer and fall. Have 14 bags now with two cups each. Will probably buy more corn at next week's farmer's market. I remember doing this growing up and it would take quite the herd of us to spend one WHOLE day doing each of the steps. We'd have all four burners on the stove going with boiling pots of water and people at each "station" doing their job. It was a long day. I think I like this four dozen a week thing! Mom, how many dozen did we do at those times? We would also spend our fair share of enjoying certain ears that needed to be eaten right then and slathered them with butter and salt and pepper. Also when you cut it off the cob, it often stays in big pieces, those are hard to resist as you're bagging it! Yum. Gotta love summertime harvest!
The boys have been asking me if they can have a "big" cookie and until tonight I hadn't let them have one. I'd break them into fourths and let them eat smaller pieces of these giant cookies I've been baking. They were happy to finally get their own big one. Although, when you ask my boys to "pose" for a picture, this is what you get.
They really were happy and were just being silly and each ate their whole cookie! They should sleep well with their full little tummies after that cookie and milk!
